Re: Schodack Island State Park
I have island camped for years on Middle ground (state) island which is free..
Schodack park is a great launch and good people .. You can launch for free weekdays , $6.00 weekends , leave your vehicle and come back when done.. I would have no issue leaving gear unattended in the parking (seasonal) area.. It's a well run/watched park..
2 years ago I bought a 22' cabin boat and decided, that's my camper and get a dock rental at a near by marina for striper season.. It makes things much easier.. The wife and grandkids wont sleep on the boat however..
With the now, long over due camping sites at Schodack park , we will probably bring camper and set up , then go back and grab boat so everyone in my family can enjoy the overnight experience..
I have caught fish from shore along the man made wall at the park.. If we camp it will open up some great after sundown fishing while camping there from shore.. I see nothing about "no access" that will prohibit this..
There will be no overnight on water docking though at the park..
what's that smell like fish oh baby
